Treble success for Ballathie at the Hotel of the Year Awards

Top country wedding award is icing on the cake for Ballathie!

Ballathie House Hotel has had its growing reputation for hosting wedding receptions crowned by being named Scotland's top country wedding venue of 2011.

Manager Arnaud Merrouche collected the trophy at the Scottish Hotel of the Year Awards at a gala dinner attended by more than 400 guests in Glasgow and then picked up his own award for Corporate Hospitality.

Head Housekeeper Maureen Grant, who has been at Ballathie for 17 years, made it a treble for the luxury hotel on the banks of the River Tay at Kinclaven, Perthshire, when she was presented with the 'Superstar Housekeeper' Award.

Arnaud, who was promoted to the post of Manager last year after many years as the hotel's restaurant and duty manager, commented: "It's a remarkable success to win three awards in these 'Oscars' of the Scottish hospitality industry and underlines the high quality we always strive to achieve across the board."

Ballathie, which recently held a popular wedding fair, can host wedding receptions for up to 200 people.

"There are many countryside venues throughout Scotland which provide top class service and beautiful settings for weddings," Arnaud added. "We are very proud that the judges decided that Ballathie is the best of them all."

His Hospitality Award was presented in recognition of the high standard of customer service which he personally provides and oversees at the 52 bedroom hotel.
